Remember when you were able to raise your head high? I thought to myself as the taste of blood stained my braces. At that moment I came to the realization that I was no better than the girls I use to judge. The girls that were hurt, abused, and disrespected became a reflection of myself. Isn’t it funny how we are so quick to judge other individuals? Constant self reminders of what we would and would not do – only to become a victim of our own criticism.
It’s never funny when the tables turn.
Like many Princesses before myself, I had to kiss a couple of frogs before I reached my Prince. It just so happen that this frog wanted to destroy my peace. The type of person who felt like hurting you wasn’t enough. He wanted to destroy my purpose on this earth. How foolish can my heart be to allow someone like this so close to me? But it wasn’t hard. He turned family into strangers, friends into enemies until I was alone…..with just him. The devil always isolates you.
That was the darkest time of my life. I don’t know if it was God’s favour or possibly my grandmother prayers but I was able to make it out of that situation with minor scars. The Lord had to humble my mind and protect my heart for me to become the woman I am today. I rejoice in the testimony. I look back at those weakest moments of my life and rejoice in the strength it has given me. For whoever is reading this I speak life within your darkest moments and I pray for discernment over each and every decision you make. ❤
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
